What is the origin of so long used to express goodbye?

"So Long - farewell, Northern expression imported into Britain by soldiers serving in Malayan-speaking countries. Malayan salutation, Salang, a corruption of Arabic Salaam=peace."

It is of course an expression used in all English - speaking countries, not just the north of England, but maybe it first appeared there. However there are other opinions as to origin of the phrase.

It is also conceivable that the expression stems from the Irish (Gailge) word "slán," in which the accent lengthens the 'a' so that the word is pronounced 'slawn,' which sounds very similar to 'so long.' The word which is a shorted version of the expression "slán go fóil," which literally means 'goodbye for now.'Due to the widespread use of the expression 'so long' in the United States the theory is that it was introduced by Irish immigrants in the mid-nineteenth century and then spread memetically.
